Lace up your dancing shoes and turn the volume all the way up to 11 – it’s #WorldMusicDay! 😀

Today all around the world, people from all walks of life are celebrating music, a medium that is clearly interwoven into almost every culture and society in recorded history!

Music is a hugely powerful art form; it’s helped to shape cultures, inspire youth movements, spark trends in fashion, create emotion, and even start revolutions! It’s little wonder that such a powerful way of expressing yourself is celebrated each year on this happy day! ^^




Smiley @ Isle of Wight Festival!

Last week the Smiley team hit the beautiful Isle of Wight for this year’s summer festival, an incredible weekend of fun, sun, and banging tunes! ^^ The line up this year was fantastic, with David Guetta, Arcade Fire, and Rod Stewart headlining on the main stage.

Smiley was there to promote our recent collaboration with Palladium Boots, celebrating both brand’s landmark anniversaries and the launch of this unique capsule collection (and sneak off to catch our favourite bands!) 😉

From a booth in the Artists Village the Smiley and Palladium teams worked tirelessly with a group of super stylish fashion bloggers, to showcase the beautiful selection of SmileyxPalladium shoes and festival essentials, and hand out free pairs to any of the artists that came to investigate the bright smiley flags flapping proudly in the breeze! 😀

Another friend of Smiley at the festival was Claire’s, who brought their own trio of trendy teen bloggers to promote their funky fruity accessories and Smiley denim backpacks, which have become an absolute must-have this summer for teens and young adults. You can follow the fun on Instagram @claireseurope or by searching the #ClairesOnTour tag ^^

Smiley @ Glastonbury!

This morning the Smiley squad is gathering at Castle Cary Station for the Glastonbury Festival, which kicks off today and runs for five whole days of festival fun!

The station is small and has traditionally formed a choke point for festival goers, last year leading to delays with groups of friends stranded waiting for stragglers to join them.

This year the team will be on hand to turn those frowns upside down, with giveaways of Smiley festival essentials, flags, stickers, and badges, guaranteed to brighten even the gloomiest day of British ‘summer’ 😉

We’ve also got three exclusive custom Smiley Snapchat Geofilters for the festival, so make sure to snap some selfies, tag @Smiley, or include the #SmileyFestival tag for a chance to win some amazing festival goodies!




That’s all from us for now, so have a fantastic week of summer sun and festival fun! 😀 ')}
